PidTagMessageRecipientMe Canonical Property

General messaging


This property provides a convenient way to determine whether the user name appears explicitly in the recipient list, without examining all entries in the list. The value represents the logical OR operation of the properties PR_MESSAGE_CC_ME (PidTagMessageCcMe) and PR_MESSAGE_TO_ME (PidTagMessageToMe), and the BCC information (which does not otherwise appear in a property).

This property assists automated handling of received messages at the time of receipt. At the transport provider's option, this property either contains FALSE or is not included if the messaging user is not listed directly in the recipient table.

Message delivery that results from distribution list expansion does not cause this property to be set. The recipient must be explicitly named.

Unsent messages generally do not set this property, PR_MESSAGE_CC_ME, or PR_MESSAGE_TO_ME. If they are present in messages the user can access in public message stores, in other users' private stores, in files on disk, or embedded inside other received messages, they generally contain the values to which they were set the last time a transport provider delivered the message.
